Getting lost is the topic this week, from a twice shipwrecked (and probably quite annoying) Dutchman and his adventures in Java and Indonesia, to intrepid Amazon explorer Percy Fawcett, his unfortunately named friends, and their quest for the lost city of Z.
Welcome to That Was Genius: Two blokes. A 12-hour time difference. An immature sense of humour. And 10,000 years of human civilisation. A weekly podcast looking at the weirder side of history.
Join Sam Datta-Paulin (he likes history and lives in Britain) and Tom Berry (he also likes history but lives in New Zealand), for a weekly reflection on the bold, the brilliant... And the downright strange.
From bizarre events and stories to equally odd inventions, barely a day goes by without something incredible (or incredibly stupid) happening around the world.
We upload new episodes every Wednesday night/Thursday morning (UK time).
